NEW YORK/SEVILLE—OCT. 14, 2019 – MTV today announced that iconic rock act Green Day will headline “MTV World Stage Seville,” closing out “MTV Music Week” at the city’s spectacular Plaza de España on Saturday, November 2nd. The concert will take place ahead of the “2019 MTV EMAs,” which will broadcast live on Sunday, November 3rd at 9:00pm CET from FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre in Seville, Spain.
Green Day fans will have the opportunity to obtain limited ‘first-access’ tickets beginning 11:00 CET on Tuesday, October 15th via a special code and link sent to band’s mailing list. Sign up can be found at https://greenday.com/sign-up.
“Green Day are, without a doubt, one of the world’s most successful rock bands. And after three decades, their music remains super fresh and relevant,” said Bruce Gillmer, global head of music and talent, Viacom and co-brand head, MTV International. “We’re thrilled to have them take the stage in Seville to deliver what they’ve always been known for — an iconic supercharged performance!”
Honored with the “MTV EMA Global Icon” award in 2016, Green Day recently released their brand new single “Father Of All…,” which is the lead track on their forthcoming thirteenth studio album of the same name, out February 7, 2020 on Reprise/Warner Records. In the summer of 2020, they will embark on a global stadium tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer; their HELLA MEGA Tour presented by Harley-Davidson kicks off June 13 in Paris and will visit cities throughout Europe, the U.K. and North America. Additionally, the rock icons will perform a series of solo dates throughout Europe and Asia in support of their album, Father Of All… Tour dates are available here.
Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, CA, Green Day is one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, with more than 70 million records sold worldwide and 10 billion cumulative audio/visual streams. Their 1994 breakout album Dookie, which sold over 10 million and achieved diamond status, is widely credited with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock, catapulting a career-long run of #1 hit singles. In 2015, the band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility. Entertainment Weekly calls Green Day, “The most influential band of their generation,” while Rolling Stone attests, “Green Day have inspired more young bands to start than any act this side of KISS, and that doesn’t seem to be changing.”
